When China’s movie industry will finally start to flourish
When China is finally allowed to become a true movie producer, the country’s movie stars and producers are likely to have to pay for their own productions.
That’s the message from the Hollywood studios that have long opposed China’s restrictive film laws, saying it’s a way to stifle innovation and competition.
The message has also come from Hollywood, which has long opposed the Communist Party’s strict rules on movie production.
But there’s one key difference now: The studios say China’s movies aren’t actually regulated.
They’re merely under scrutiny by government regulators, who are making sure that their films meet Chinese regulations.
Now, in an attempt to tamp down any lingering fears, the Chinese government is giving them an earful.
For the past few years, the government has made a series of statements that make it sound like China is cracking down on Hollywood.
For example, in February, the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television said it would start regulating the “quality, quality of production and the quality of content of films produced by foreign companies.”
China also said it was developing “more-powerful” movie regulation that could include a blacklisting of foreign films.
And in November, the authorities began to ban a number of foreign-made movies that don’t meet strict rules for quality.
“China is no longer looking to be a producer in Hollywood, but to be the producer in China,” said Steven Rosenblum, president of the Institute for Policy Studies, a Washington think tank.
“And the movie industry needs to be ready to do the same.”
For some Hollywood stars, the new restrictions are likely the final nail in the coffin.
They have expressed their disappointment in the government, calling it a sign of disrespect.
“We are not going to play along with this,” said Michael B. Jordan, who plays the lead in the upcoming Disney movie The Winter Soldier.
“I’m going to boycott this movie.
I don’t want to be involved in this.
I have no interest in it.”
Rosenblum said the Chinese authorities have also told the Hollywood industry that they will take steps to prevent Hollywood from doing business with China.
So Hollywood has decided to take a stand.
While the new regulations have not stopped the Hollywood business, they have hurt the movie business in a way that may not be permanent, said Bruce Rosenblud, the head of the International Association of Film Directors.
The new regulations may be the first test of whether the Hollywood-style movie business will survive.
The government has a strong incentive to crack down on the industry, Rosenblut said.
The more the industry faces pressure from the government and other Chinese entities, the more it will have to negotiate with producers and distributors to get their movies to theaters.
“I’m not sure the government is going to be able to push these restrictions back, especially when you have such a large movie business that’s competing for distribution in China with such small studios and studios that are not doing as well,” Rosenblump said.
In an interview with ABC News, a producer with the Motion Picture Association of America, which represents more than 100 independent studios and producers, called the new rules “unacceptable” and said they are hurting the industry.”
In the meantime, we will see the film industry move forward.”

The producer, who asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity of the issue, said the new guidelines have hurt Chinese producers because they have had to hire overseas workers, including in places like Vietnam, China and Cambodia.
The producers have said they will be filing a lawsuit against the government.
The Hollywood-produced movies will be exempt from the new requirements if they don’t violate any regulations, such as those on safety or quality.
But the new movie regulations could potentially have an impact on what Chinese film makers can do with the foreign-language movies that are released.
Chinese movie studios have long been accused of producing low-quality movies, and it has long been the view that they shouldn’t be able use foreign-produced films to make films.
The new regulations are intended to help producers and movie studios comply with Chinese regulations, which include rules on safety and quality.
If Hollywood and other film producers can’t get their films to theaters in China, they could end up getting caught in a bidding war with foreign film studios, said Amy Tan, a professor at the University of California, Irvine School of Law.
That could hurt Hollywood because it would be forced to pay the movie companies to show the films.
“The question is whether this will be a temporary or permanent fix,” Tan said.
